Penny was one of five dogs Wild at Heart Foundation helped to rehome after their rescue from the Yulin Dog Meat Festival. The festival was established in 2009 and every year thousands of dogs are brutally butchered for the market, many of which are stolen pets. We worked alongside the Humane Society International to place just a handful of these rescued pups into the loving homes they deserve. Unfortunately we were unable to find a forever home for Penny before they travelled, but she is now in a wonderful foster home in Scotland, where she’s patiently waiting for her new family to spot her.
Penny is a happy, friendly girl with an active nature. She's very happy to be around people and she’s great with other dogs. Despite her sad background, Penny is confident and adaptable, and would make a lovely, loyal companion in the right home. Penny loves the Aga and being warm! Now she’s experiencing what it’s like to be in a home environment she’s getting happier by the day and her little tail has started wagging!
Penny loves treats and would likely be best suited to a home with another dog to help improve her confidence, as she loves their company. She’s in good health, is good with children, and has a sweet, gentle nature. She walks well on the lead and would love a home in a semi-rural environment as she loves being outdoors. She’s also very smart and we think she’ll respond very well to training.
